Welcome to Wellness Confidential, our quick-fire interview series where we ask hard-hitting (okay, entertaining) wellness questions, lightning round-style.

This week we’re chatting with Ayesha Curry: blogger, author of the upcoming cookbook The Seasoned Life, and wife of NBA star Stephen Curry (you’ve probably seen their unbelievably cute 3-year-old daughter Riley stealing Dad’s spotlight in post-game press conferences, too). 

My mantra of the moment

“Live in the moment.” My husband and I have been implementing this into our lives for almost two years now. We even have matching tattoos as a reminder.

Workout I’m currently obsessed with

9Round boxing in Walnut Creek and my Peloton bike for in-home spin!

The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try

Colonics or a dairy-free diet.

My most memorable sweaty moment

For some reason, no matter how hard I work out, I won’t drop an ounce of sweat. I wish I could so I could feel accomplished after I work out but it never happens—I hate it.

I firmly believe that a woman can never have too many

Beauty products!

One way I’ve given back that I’m proud of

Raising my little girls and teaching them how to be decent human beings. I also work a lot alongside No Kid Hungry bringing awareness to ensuring that no child is at school hungry. Some children don’t even have a simple breakfast in the morning—No Kid Hungry is working hard to change that, and I’m so proud to be a part of it.

The one song that I’ve been playing on repeat

“Hands to Myself” by Selena Gomez.

My go-to spot for date night with my BF/GF/BFFs

Sasa—it’s a sushi spot near our home.

Most people probably don’t know this about me, but

I played the electric bass growing up, and was in a jazz band.

If sugar was a superfood, my diet would consist of

Vegan maple donuts. I can’t get enough of them.

The last time I used my oven

Last night, I turned to my oven to make a flavorful pot roast. I pulled out pre-cut veggies and a leftover cut of meat from my freezer and chopped up some fresh potatoes for a super simple meal.

I never make a smoothie without adding

Frozen fruit—I like my smoothies really thick and creamy and using frozen fruit really does the trick. My go-tos are berries and bananas. I slice them up when they’re fresh, wrap [them up] in Glad freezer wrap, and put them in my freezer for later so I can keep them from going bad and enjoy seasonal fruit all year long.

If I were a fruit or vegetable, I’d be

A peach. Delicate and soft on the outside but totally sweet and sassy on the inside.

Speaking of peaches, take advantage of the in-season fruit by making this deliciously fresh peach green juice. Plus, you can learn how to navigate the farmers’ market like a pro with our ultimate shopping guide.
